The next decision is what type of wig to get. There are many wigs made for cancer patients available. Some people like a synthetic wig because the way it is made allows air to flow through it. Of major importance to think about is that the patient may be shy about trying on wigs so it is best to pick a shop that respects their privacy. A shop that specializes in wigs for cancer patients will be aware of this and will be able to provide the necessary privacy.

 

A custom made natural hair wig is probably not going to be a choice as they can take months to create. A synthetic or mix of synthetic and natural hair would be the best choice. A synthetic wig has easier maintenance. After all, the wig will be worn seven days a week, all day long.

They will require cleaning and perhaps some styling. All of this needs to be considered. Perhaps buying two wigs is a possibility, maybe in different styles and/or colors. Then there can be a style change and it will let one of the wigs air out.

 

Perhaps you shop at a boutique or jewelry store and have encountered the same sales person a few times, then you also may have encountered her wearing a new wig. If you feel comfortable with her you may ask her about her new hair do. She might reply that she had chemotherapy and it is a wig. But other than those occurrences, it is not a topic you think about.

Wigs for cancer patients are a big business. These wigs are made slightly different than the wig you might see at the hair dresser or beauty sales shop.

 

Another reason you may think about wigs for cancer patients is if you might be diagnosed with a form of cancer and may be looking to have chemotherapy yourself. So maybe it is time to give some thought to the subject of wigs for cancer patients.
